The Global Air Navigation Plan (Doc 9750) is the ICAO’s highest air navigation strategic document and the plan to drive the evolution of the global air navigation system, in line with the Global Air Traffic Management Operational Concept (GATMOC, Doc 9854) and the Manual on Air Traffic Management System Requirements (Doc 9882). Developed in collaboration with and for the benefit of stakeholders, the GANP is a key contributor to the achievement of ICAO’s Strategic Objectives and has an important role to play in supporting the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The content of the GANP is organized into a multilayer structure with each layer tailored to different audiences. This allows for better communication with both high-level and technical managers with the objective that no State or stakeholder is left behind. The four-layer structure is made up of global (strategic and technical), regional and national levels, and provides a framework for alignment of regional, sub-regional and national plans. The four-layer structure facilitates decision making by providing a stable strategic direction for the evolution of the air navigation system and, at the same time, timely relevance in the technical content.
Provides high-level strategic directions for decision makers to drive the evolution of the global air navigation system towards a common agreed vision.
Addresses regional and sub-regional needs aligned with the global objectives.
The GANP drives the evolution of the global air navigation system to meet the ever growing expectations of the aviation community. The purpose of the GANP is to equitably accommodate all airspace users operations in a safe, secure and cost-effective manner while reducing the aviation environmental impact. To this end, the GANP provides a series of operational improvements to increase capacity, efficiency, predictability, flexibility while ensuring interoperability of systems and harmonization of procedures. The GASP supports the implementation of the GANP by promoting the effective implementation of safety oversight and a safety management approach to oversight, including safety risk management to permit innovation in a managed way.
